Brooklyn’s Tanlines has been riding the wave of “Real Life” for some time now. That track, a tropically-tinged gem which amazingly first surfaced all the way back in 2009, has allowed the band to fill warehouses in the winter and courtyards in the summer for the past few years. With that in mind, the duo’s long-awaited debut LP, Mixed Emotions (artwork above), has finally been completed and will be dropping on March 20 via True Panther, providing an opportunity to hear a more complete statement from the group. Last month’s “Brothers” was a more subdued affair, but the second single from Emotions matches the energy of “Real Life” and then some. “All of Me” prances about with electro flares, but all the while maintains an Afro-pop backbone, one that’s rife with hooks and ringing guitars.
